EDIT: Fixed speed.

ARG!

I'm soooo upset! It's never spoken out loud, or mentioned, but you can TELL there's a lot of stupid Art-racism in this community.

So, I made this stamp. :heart: I didn't seem to find any others like it (although if you made one, let me know!), so here. Sorry it's a little small; it's my first time animating, ok?! Jeez...give a person a break...

Pffff. I'm going to school now.

I honestly can't tell the difference between a PS and GIMP made pic, if the artist is good it shouldn't matter. Its like not watching a Pixar movie because you don't like the RenderMan program.

I just personally enjoy PhotoShop more due to it being better suited to how I work.

I am a GIMP and Paint.Net user. I rarely use MS Paint, but that it's just for sketches, if the drawing is completely digital. Sketching is usually made traditionally.
While I can't afford for SAI or Photoshop, I'm enjoying the stuff I can do with the programs I already have. :]

The only thing I like in Photoshop is: PSD file, with this i Save what i was doing in Sai and use on gimp without mess the layers, it's something very good, the problem with gimp is that it doesn't have those folders to make division

The-Talking-Absol Featured By Owner Oct 8, 2011
Good plan! I can't use Sai now because I have a Mac, but I like GIMP's XCF format. And yeah, I kinda wish GIMP had a "folders" option. It would make things a lot easier on comics and the like. But oh well! Can't have everything. :)

I use Photoshop myself, but I have used Gimp a few times. I have a portable version installed at the moment. I usually would recommend Gimp to people who cannot afford Photoshop. A friend of mine has Gimp Portable installed because she wanted something more advanced than MS Paint.

Yeah, I don't have anything against Photoshop; I like using it, and I know it's the more "professional" of the two, but it seems like there's a lot of hatred/distaste between GIMP users and Photoshop users. I created this stamp in an attempt to dissuade that, and encourage people to not just fav. the most "wonderful" art, but also stuff that may not be as "high-quality" in their eyes (but still appealing to them!).

Hmm, I'll have to check that out. I've never heard of GIMP-Portable. Thanks for pointing that out, and thanks for the comment!

You're welcome.

Gimp Portable is the same as normal Gimp. What makes it stand out is that it is not a "hard install", meaning no registries are installed. It can be put on a USB stick and used on other computers, fully functional. Portables are useful for people with limited accounts. Because they require no registry keys to be installed, they don't need as much permissions to install them.

There is another type of Gimp I know of, called Gimpshop. It's basically Gimp with a Photoshop-like look. It doesn't work for me, though.

why would you spend money on ps if you only draw because it`s your hobby :hmm:

Exactly my point. But, I guess some professionals like it because it has some shortcuts GIMP doesn't have. But yeah, for people who use it as a hobby, then why spend 900 bucks on a program you're not going to use seriously? Thanks for the comment!

Haaaa *fave because i use gimp*

I had no idea there was gimp-racists out there D:

And from the random painting you linked... I went to an art gallery and there was tons of stuff like that, plus circles and lines painted on a canvas, splatter paintings, and a rotting log...

Yay! I am still using GIMP, although I moved from a PC to a Mac the other day. It's tedious work, getting used to it, but a lot of fun.

I also like Photoshop plenty enough, but there's good and bad to both PS and G. :shrug: I am required to get PS for my job and my major, but I'm still going to use GIMP a lot.

Ack, not as bad as I make it out to be, I guess. It's just that, when I go through the favs and look at the comments of the "great" artists around here, I notice that everybody tends to stick to their art circles, and don't comment or fav stuff that may be of a lesser quality than theirs (depending upon what one considers art, granted! That's what I love about it- it's supposed to be subjective. But I don't think that everybody realizes or thinks that).

I guess I just don't get the point of art like that. But, perhaps I just haven't been fully exposed to that world. Oh well. XD Thanks for the comment! Go GIMP artists!

I haven't had much of a chance to work with photoshop, only at school occasionally. I like it too, but GIMP is just easier for me to use (and free ._.)

What? People say things like that? :noes:

I mean, really, that's ridiculous. If the art's good, it really doesn't mean squat what it was made with. If it's excellently done, it'll even be a bit hard to deduce the exact medium.

No, not...out loud. But, go through anyone's favorites or watches or galleries, and it becomes obvious. People like, oh, say Bleedman or any one of the big-time artists on dA, don't make friends with people who use GIMP or have "lower-quality" art than them. Maybe I really am just paranoid, but it still upsets me.

Ahh, well, I believe that "art" is entirely subjective. I would think that hand-paintings by (when and if, mind you) my two year old, even if they were just smears, were adorable, and would proudly hang them up in my house. I don't, however, understand why people want to put stuff like this [link] up. :shrug: Beauty is, indeed, in the eye of the beholder.

Oh, that sucks. :( People like that really shouldn't bother with empty discriminations like that.

I would agree about art, I have never really 'understood' pictures like you linked. Completely abstract art, OK, sure, but sometimes it looks like someone was just doing random sloppy work and masking it under 'deeper messages in the art'.
I say - dude, if you need five paragraphs to explain what your splatters, pardon me, the picture represents, it's likely you didn't do a very good job.

You did a really good job animating this, especially considering this is your first time. The only thing that I would say should be tweaked a bit would be the speed in which the frames change, to me it seems like its going 1.5x or 2x faster than it should be.

Now for me it’s not that I think people who use Gimp over Photoshop have art that sucks, quite frankly I could give a S**t less about whatever anyone else uses as long as they get an end result that they are satisfied with, it’s that I feel it is usually easier to achieve the look you are going for with Photoshop as opposed to Gimp. For me personally, Gimp just simply doesn’t cut it since I need to utilize tools and filters that simply are not available for the program. There is also the fact that I am looking into possibly going into graphic design or photography for my career. I can very safely say that no one in the industry (or at least no one I have ever heard of) uses Gimp to create a marketable product for a company. Now this of course doesn’t mean that art created with a program like Gimp is inferior, it just simply means that the program doesn’t have the elements necessary for professional use. Hopefully none of what I just said made me sound snobby ^^;

Oh, I didn't know how to do that when I started. Fixed it now.

Yeah, I know Photoshop has more...real-world elements, and trust me- I know what you're talking about with the Graphic Designer thing! It's not like I hate Photoshop- no, I think it rocks- it's just the fact that people seem to think GIMP doesn't even come close in quality. They are very similar; it's just a few filters and nicer graphics (along with price) that separate them.

AT LEAST WE DON'T HAVE TO BUY 500 EFFING PROGRAMS JUST TO PRINT, ANIMATE, OR PHOTO-MANIPULATE!

Still seems a tad fast, but definitely much better.

You are right; Photoshop and Gimp are similar in many aspects. As for the quality of what you are working on, it depends on what it is you are trying to do. For some things like drawing and simple editing Gimp and Photoshop are on an even playing field, yet for advanced manipulation Gimp just doesn’t have the capabilities to do what I need it to. In my mind the bottom line is this: If you want a program to do some nice editing and drawing for cheap, nothing beats Gimp. However if you want something for more advanced editing and designing and you are willing to pay a decent chunk of change for it then you should go with Photoshop.

I agree it’s nice that there are programs out there that make things far easier (all caps?).
